Ice Planet 2002: Astral Quadrant HQ

Postby LittleJohn » Wed Mar 14, 2018 7:14 pm

I’ve always liked the classic Ice Planet theme that LEGO made, and after looking at Chris Perron’s incredible Ice Inspector: https://www.flickr.com/photos/thebrickbin/13185640345/in/dateposted/ and Siercon and Coral’s magnificent Ice Planet Base: https://www.flickr.com/photos/legocy/8394273414/in/dateposted/
I wanted to try my hand at a build in the classy blue, white, and trans-neon orange colors. I’m quite pleased with the result, and it was very enjoyable to build. The micro truck outside the main base is supposed to be a rendition of Chris’s monstrous Ice Inspector that I linked to earlier in the post, though unfortunately I wasn’t able to pack in all the details on it that I would have liked to. Hopefully it is still recognizable as being inspired by his masterpiece though!

This build was my first time trying to incorporate lights into a model, which was both fun and frustrating at times. I’m pretty happy with the result, but if anyone has tips or suggestions about ways to improve it, definitely let me know!

I also want to give huge thank-you to Graham Gidman (https://www.flickr.com/photos/graham-gidman/) for helping me out with the edit, I know it wouldn’t have turned out this well without his help!
